Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning

The dramatic growth in practical applications for machine learning over the last ten years has been accompanied by many important developments in the underlying algorithms and techniques. For example, Bayesian methods have grown from a specialist niche to become mainstream, while graphical models have emerged as a general framework for describing and applying probabilistic techniques. The practical applicability of Bayesian methods has been greatly enhanced by the development of a range of approximate inference algorithms such as variational Bayes and expectation propagation, while new models based on kernels have had a significant impact on both algorithms and applications.This completely new textbook reflects these recent developments while providing a comprehensive introduction to the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. It is aimed at advanced undergraduates or first-year PhD students, as well as researchers and practitioners. No previous knowledge of pattern recognition or machine learning concepts is assumed. Familiarity with multivariate calculus and basic linear algebra isrequired, and some experience in the use of probabilities would be helpful though not essential as the book includes a self-contained introduction to basic probability theory.The book is suitable for courses on machine learning, statistics, computer science, signal processing, computer vision, data mining, and bioinformatics. Extensive support is provided for course instructors, including more than 400 exercises, graded according to difficulty. Example solutions for a subset of the exercises are available from the book web site, while solutions for the remainder can be obtained by instructors from the publisher. The book is supported by a great deal of additional material, and the reader is encouraged to visit the book web site for the latest information.Coming soon: For students, worked solutions to a subset of exercises available on a public web site (for exercises marked "www" in the text) For instructors, worked solutions to remaining exercises from the Springer web site Lecture slides to accompany each chapter Data sets available for download
From the reviews:
"This beautifully produced book is intended for advanced undergraduates, PhD students, and researchers and practitioners, primarily in the machine learning or allied areas...A strong feature is the use of geometric illustration and intuition...This is an impressive and interesting book that might form the basis of several advanced statistics courses. It would be a good choice for a reading group." John Maindonald for the Journal of Statistical Software
"In this book, aimed at senior undergraduates or beginning graduate students, Bishop provides an authoritative presentation of many of the statistical techniques that have come to be considered part of 'pattern recognition' or 'machine learning'. ... This book will serve as an excellent reference. ... With its coherent viewpoint, accurate and extensive coverage, and generally good explanations, Bishop's book is a useful introduction ... and a valuable reference for the principle techniques used in these fields." (Radford M. Neal, Technometrics, Vol. 49 (3), August, 2007)
"This book appears in the Information Science and Statistics Series commissioned by the publishers. ... The book appears to have been designed for course teaching, but obviously contains material that readers interested in self-study can use. It is certainly structured for easy use. ... For course teachers there is ample backing which includes some 400 exercises. ... it does contain important material which can be easily followed without the reader being confined to a pre-determined course of study." (W. R. Howard, Kybernetes, Vol. 36 (2), 2007)
"Bishop (Microsoft Research, UK) has prepared a marvelous book that provides a comprehensive, 700-page introduction to the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. Aimed at advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students, as well as researchers and practitioners, the book assumes knowledge of multivariate calculus and linear algebra ... . Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (C. Tappert, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (9), May, 2007)
"The book is structured into 14 main parts and 5 appendices. ... The book is aimed at PhD students, researchers and practitioners. It is well-suited for courses on machine learning, statistics, computer science, signal processing, computer vision, data mining, and bio-informatics. Extensive support is provided for course instructors, including more than 400 exercises, lecture slides and a great deal of additional material available at the book's web site ... ." (Ingmar Randvee, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1107 (9), 2007)
"This new textbook by C. M. Bishop is a brilliant extension of his former book 'Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition'. It is written for graduate students or scientists doing interdisciplinary work in related fields. ... In summary, this textbook is an excellent introduction to classical pattern recognition and machine learning (in the sense of parameter estimation). A large number of very instructive illustrations adds to this value." (H. G. Feichtinger, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 151 (3), 2007)
"Author aims this text at advanced undergraduates, beginning graduate students, and researchers new to machine learning and pattern recognition. ... Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning provides excellent intuitive descriptions and appropriate-level technical details on modern pattern recognition and machine learning. It can be used to teach a course or for self-study, as well as for a reference. ... I strongly recommend it for the intended audience and note that Neal (2007) also has given this text a strong review to complement its strong sales record." (Thomas Burr, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 103 (482), June, 2008)
"This accessible monograph seeks to provide a comprehensive introduction to the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. It presents a unified treatment of well-known statistica

geniales buch
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 17.04.2009

Das Buch deckt viel Stoff von hoeheren Semestern ab und ist sicher auch fuer das PHD Studium gut. Mit den vielen Zeichnungen und Skizzen werden die Formeln sehr gut erklaert. Man findet selten ein Buch mit einer solchen Dichte an Informationen die auch noch verstaendlich erklaert sind.
